Chelsea in the English Premier League, whose performance is not rising despite huge investments, is expected to take out a manager replacement card. Owner Todd Boelli has already given up expectations of head coach Graham Porto. While looking for other alternatives, Luis Enrique (53), a former coach of the Spanish national team and a potential replacement for AT Madrid, has emerged.
The Daily Mail, a British mass media, said on the 6th (Korean time), ‘Chelsea club is aiming for former Spain national team and Barcelona manager Enrique as a card to pressure manager Porter. It has entered the radar of Boelli owner’s net,’ it reported.
After Boelli’s owner took over, Chelsea made an active investment, but the current performance is not good. Just 8th in the league. Remaining will be successful, but it is difficult to see further achievements. For this reason, the owner of Boelli, who seeks efficiency, has great dissatisfaction with manager Porter.
In this situation, the person who emerged as a new alternative is Enrique. Enrique led Spain at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. However, the team was eliminated in the round of 16 and hardened. Still, there are not a few competitors who send love calls to Enrique. At present, it is evaluated that Atletico Madrid is the most likely to sign Enrique. Chelsea are the latecomers. Therefore, fierce competition seems inevitable.
